Motion text

That this House expresses its deep concern that on 27 October 2018, Turkish forces launched a series of attacks against villages west of Kobane and in Gire Spi in Northern Syria; condemns these attacks, the impact on the civilian population of these villages and, in particular, the killing of a 12-year old girl in Gire Spi on 1 November, World Kobane Day; notes that the Syrian Democratic Federation forces had been engaged in a battle to defeat the last bastions of ISIS in the region with the support of US-led coalition forces; and calls on the Government to exert meaningful and decisive political, diplomatic and economic pressure on the Turkish Government to cease these illegal cross border attacks against the UK's allies in the majority Kurdish region.
